Wow, everyone was "Ruler Ready" today. I was impressed with how well everyone did remembering our rules for getting ready to measure. Everyone did an outstanding job measuring classroom items. We were movin' and groovin' with our rulers! We also learned the abbreviation for centimeters is cm and the abbreviation in. is for inches.
We had another ELF HUNT contest today. The class had fun looking for these sneaky little fellows. Congratulations to yesterday's winner, Henry who found eleven of the twelve hiding elves. Today's winners were: Elizabeth, Joshua, and Jax who found ten of the twelve elves.
I read The Grinch Who Stole Christmas again today. The class did an assessment on the characters' response to events in the story. This is a standard reported on the first report card. I will change all grades from the first quarter if today's assessment was better. I always go back and change grades once a standard has been mastered so look for this throughout the year.
